IATA's Industry Priorities and Targets
IATA’s major priorities for 2016 were set by the association’s Board of Governors during their December 2015 session.
Key Performance Indicators
- Expand e-AWB penetration to 56% on legally feasible trade lanes and launch Government endorsed e‐freight initiatives in 15 of top 25 non‐feasible locations (airports or countries). In addition:
- Define Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) at 25 of top 50 airports equipped to handle e-AWB
- Launch a desktop e-AWB solution that will be available in 20 countries
- Develop and publish and implementation playbook
- Reduce airport & ANSP charges, fuel fees and taxes by US$800m and proposed cost increases by 27% for 2016-2017.
- Reinforce the reliability of the industry settlements systems (ISS) with a default rate not exceeding 0.0.25 of gross sales, their efficiency with 99.98% on time funds, and decrease operating fees to 11.25$cents for BSP and 32.31$cents for CASS.
- Increase Fast Travel capability so that its value can reach 40% of eligible passengers.
Transform distribution and payment
- Facilitate the adoption of New Generation IATA Settlement Systems resolutions by the Passenger Agency Conference (PAC).
- Drive New Distribution Capability (NDC), with a total of 20 airlines live.
- Obtain the adoption of the ONE Order foundation standard by the Passenger Services Conference (PSC)
- Conduct 20 Smart Security opportunity assessments at airports, with 45% of recommendations accepted for implementation.
- Ensure that 50% of member airlines begin implementation of the IATA Ground Handling Operations Manual (IGOM) as their minimum standard for ground operations.
Work with ICAO to:
- Ensure that any new complimentary Standard and Recommended Practices (SARPs) are fit for purpose.
- Finalize guidance material for regulators, ANSPs and operators when Normal Aircraft Tracking regulations are complete.
- Secure support from governments/stakeholders in relation to specific value of aviation issues:
- Africa: 10 new countries committing support to open skies and introduction of at least 6 new intra-Africa routes
- LATAM: new infrastructure investment study completed and campaign launched
- ASPAC: statements of support from governments in three key markets on infrastructure investment
- EUR: statements of support from governments in three key markets on airspace efficiency
- Achieve the reflection of Smarter Regulation principles in three new regulations or regulatory proposals
- Achieve the reflection of industry core principles on consumer protection in regulatory movements by 4 priority countries.
- Advocate with governments for ICAO’s adoption of an agreement on a global market-based measure for international aviation which can be implemented from 2020 (CNG2020).
- Ensure a prominent role for the industry at key ICAO events in the run-up to the 2016 Assembly.
- Engage in 5 advocacy campaigns for sustainable fuel and participate in 10 influential industry or government events.
- Improve membership satisfaction.
- Broaden the membership base, with new model airlines being the focus of a quarter of membership recruitment activity.
